The tutor’s duties are described here:

  1. Help students with the technical side of their online, hybrid, Canvas, or otherwise computer-based coursework. Try to stick to helping students to learn the online tools like Canvas or google apps, rather than helping students with the actual content of the course.
  2. If other questions arise, including how to use computers or other technical, IT-type help, feel free to help the student or point the student to other resources they can use to get help, such as the Peralta IT help desk. Don’t feel like you have to be able to answer every question. Your area of expertise is how to succeed in an online class.
  3. Participate in community of practice by making a list of all the questions students ask you and contributing to repository of resources and best practices for future tutors.
